Good and personal patterns
The article discusses the problem of personal pattern with particular focus on Max Scheler’s interpretation. The author tries to define the concept of personal pattern, its relation to the concept of leader and leadership, and the role of personal patterns in the human history. Finally, I make an attempt at sketching the main tensions between the ethics of authenticity as well as between virtue ethics and their attitude to personal patterns. The types of approach include those of: M. Scheler, Ch. Taylor, A. MacIntyre and G.H. Mead.
